The annual Jewish War Veterans convention, held in Savannah, Georgia, the week of August 7th, brought with it an award for West Suburban Post 54.
Increasing membership in JWV is essential for the organization to continue to do its vital work in the Jewish community and with veterans of all faiths. As our membership continues to age, younger members will invigorate the organization with new and timely ideas.
Post 54 is doing its share of increasing membership. Over the last year the post’s membership has moved up to a total of 27 paid members. Of those 27 members, three are located in California, and three in Florida. Fortunately, with Zoom, all may attend our monthly meetings.
In recognition of the growth of Post 54, the Awards Committee of JWV presented the Post Growth Award to Post 54 at the recent annual convention.
Post members are encouraged to continue talking with veterans they meet and, if the veteran is Jewish, to spur them to join the organization. Direct the prospective member to the Home page of Post 54’s Website (jwvpost54.org) Become a Member section or print the membership application (click to view and print the application form) to give to the prospective member.
Thank you to all the members who helped make this award possible. Let’s keep the membership rolls increasing!
